But I think the bit that we both missed with his requirements is that he
ultimately wants to be able to do:

capture-website http://www.bbc.co.uk

and end up with a png of the website.

So he wants to be able to capture an image of what a website looks like from
the command line, and not really take a screenshot at all.

I think that's a fair summary anyway...
